over ten years. >> wait. so you've got a document where barack obama is saying we've got to cut medicare $250 billion, which i think is responsible. but his campaign team is going out there every day sayingatch out. we're not going to cut medicare, but mitt romney is. >> yeah. i mean, it's not just his campaign team. it's the president and himself. he says, we're going to reform and strengthen medicare for the long haul the right way by reducing the cost of health care. everyone would agree with that. not by shifting it onto seniors. well, in his own documents, he says, we have to do this. when i talk to him, he realized and said very openly that it's irresponsible to not address this. >> let's play a clip that you were alluding to. go ahead and roll it. >> all the democrats felt that for democrats to join with republicans in anything that could be painted as a medicare cut when there was a huge difference between democratic and republican positions on medicare generally was bad politics. it's an untenable position to say we're not going to do anything on medicare and medicaid w

years. i have no idea what you're talking about. and barack obama immediately goes down and starts looking at his paper again. >> why didn't he bring an oxygen tank, the theory about the altitude. a couple things. first of all, everyone thought, well, this is obama's strong suit, so of course he's going to do well. that's why it still resonates because he did badly. he didn't do well, number one. number two, people say debates don't matter. guess what, they do if you blow it. and number three, what's interesting going forward into this week, i think it puts pressure on joe biden, maybe exactly what the obama team didn't want, which is biden to feel the pressure of having to do well, which maybe is not a good place for biden to be. >> he's going to be great. he's going to be great. >> he's going to have fun. he's actually going to -- >> he is used to it. >> yes. >> unlike the president. >> and his decades working in congress will help. i think paul ryan is outmatched. you know what? whenever we say this before the debate, we set them up. sam stein, do you agree? >> i thought the pre

more years of mr. obama would be like. but significantly and for the first time, he didn't merely criticize the obama record. mr. romney went further and explained with some specificity how his policies would improve the lives and economic prospects for middle-class americans. the president seemed off his game overall, verbose as he often is, but with his famous restraint seeming more difficult than cool as mr. romney bore in with details about his record. it's clear mr. obama isn't used to someone challenging the attack lines that he uses to describe mr. romney's various proposals on the stump." and again, where was the 47%? where was it? he just didn't go there? >> that's the great mystery. >> the thing that's true in both these editorials that i do think one of the president's failures here was not just the stylistic failure, was a substantive failure. mitt romney made a lot of claims last night. he said a lot of things we've never heard from him before. he tried to claim he doesn't want to cut a $5 trillion tax cut. he said that no tax cut he imposes will add to the deficit. t

. president obama, as he has over the last 3 1/2 years, explained his vision for the country. and now you can choose. it's right there in front of you. >> you know the way i look at that? i have two members of my family, one working for romney, one working for obama, and i can see why both have made their choices. >> by the way, they both tell you that they're great leaders. >> great things. >> ian says romney's a great leader. >> amazing things. >> amazing things about romney. and, of course, mark says great, great things about the president. we're so lucky to live in this country. >> and my dad cuts them both down. >> yeah, he does. >>> coming up, "mad money's" jim cramer joins us. also "the washington post's" eugene robinson and nbc news political director chuck todd. mike allen with the "politico playbook" plus willie's "week in review." >>> up next, bill karins with a check on the forecast. bill. >> big changes this weekend. we'll watch temperatures on the east coast plunging. so enjoy today. a little taste of summer for everyone. first things first, the worst weather in the country

massachusetts trying to run on a year when president obama's on the top of the ballot. so that is a challenge for him. now, for elizabeth warren, she's a ferris-tiirst-time candidate been criticized for some of the more partisan things she has said. so one of the key moments was kind of a question put to her about who would she want to work with among republicans? again, because scott brown touts himself as someone who has worked with the other side, what would elizabeth warren do? so here's a keen moment from the debate. >> can you name some republicans in the senate today that you are able to work with on big issues, substantive issues that the country faces? >> probably richard lugar would be one that comes to mind. >> he's not going to be there. >> he's not going to be there. >> so who else could you name, senator? >> that is a problem. let me do this one -- let me do this -- >> let me ask the question, though. are there any republicans who are actually going to be in the senate you feel you could work with substantively and compromise with. >> it depends on what the subject mat

performance that barack obama did this year, about a week later, dick cheney debated john edwards. dick chainachina -- dick cheneyd to be a grownup. >> if joe biden turns in a bad performan performance, it could be what happened in '04. >>> we're all looking at that debate saying who gets the upper hand in the argument, real voters look at the vice president lt scandals saying who could be president? where you've got dick chain and john edwards as a comparison, who looks more presidential? whatever you think about their individual policies, who could step up and be the president, and i just think in that dynamic, some of that generational play is going to be for paul ryan and joe biden, whatever you think about paul ryan, is he a heart beat away from the president. and joe biden maybe filling those shoes there. could be gain shifting on both sides. >> and the way the debate's set up, it's going to be at a table, that's seated, i would say that's better for biden, when he's at a podium, he's more likely to be hotter with his mike. that was good for dick cheney, remember that was a seated

, obama, they were saying he tanked the economy going into the election four years ago. and now, of course, he's manipulating the numbers to make it look good, he's pretty good, this obama guy, manipulating the economy. but my feeling is the economy is actually picking up. >> it is. >> we slowed down in the spring, and now it is picking up. housing is up. >> exactly. >> autos up. >> consumer confidence is up. >> consumer confidence is up. union pacifi >> stock market. >> said his traffic on his railroad is up over last year. that's huge. >> you know, i have had a good friend in florida that -- earl durden, late, great earl durden, he had short-line railroads, had them all over the country. anytime i wanted to know how the economy was going to do next quarter, i'd pick him up and say how much are you moving? he would tell me. he'd go, picking up. sure enough, railroads. leading indicator. at least from what i saw. >> if you've got employment, housing, autos and railroads and -- >> it's a tough argument to say that there's something wrong with the numbers. >> andy, i would ask, you ha
